Experiences you didn’t know you wanted: No. 153
Passing through Nice one of my sons, ever alert to his father’s interest in innovative uses of new technology, picked up a flyer advertising Segway tours of the city. “City Segway Tours looks forward to welcoming you on the most fun [sic], unique, innovative and exciting tour in Nice”, it burbles. “Imagine cruising effortlessly through parks and along sidewalks while receiving a great orientation, informative historical and current-day information, heaps of unique and fascinating stories, fantastic photo ops and superb personal service from your guide”. Only 45 Euros per person. “Riders must have the ability to make motions such as climbing and descending stairs without assistance”, it adds. And must, of course, be able to walk and chew gum simultaneously.
